You’ve probably heard a lot about it, but I guess the question what it actually means still pops up every once in a while. Boho-chic is a mix of 70’s style with a hint of Gypsy look, which puts a lot of emphasis on combinations with longer pieces. So, if you’re willing to give it a go, I recommend investing in a maxi skirt, opting for leather pieces and wearing your hair down; you should also add some flat sandals and off-the-shoulder tops. All that’s left is to fill in the blanks, using your own interpretations of this gorgeous feminine style that won us over last year, and continues to do so this year. So if you get a new piece, know it’s a good investment.
They should be made of leather and preferably in natural tones, so light or dark brown. Flat, because Boho-chic is all about a natural look, and leather because it’s one of the most natural materials you can wear.
White, ruffled and long
Reach for a maxi skirt or dress with ruffles in the upper or lower part; they can even be complemented by lace, but it has to be very lightweight, as if from the world of lingerie. Let white guide you: it’s so clean, flawless, formal even, that it comes in handy during summer and winter, and it’s most certainly Nr. 1 at the moment.
There are some rules, just like there are with the flat sandals: keep it in natural leather and choose a basic model, which makes it perfect for everyday use and timeless in a way. It looks best with golden accessories and buckles, frills are an option. When considering the size, keep in mind it shouldn’t be too large, a small bag is actually really beautiful, even if it is less practical.
Floral maxi dress
It’s a must and it seems to me this is true every summer. A maxi dress is a piece you will wear, so you should own one. Lighter versions are perfect for daytime and the darker, slightly warmer colours are better for the evening, but it’s really a matter of personal taste and occasion. If it has puffy sleeves, all the better.
I know you all have more than one off-the-shoulder top at home, because you realised a long time ago just how sexy these models are. And they really are. Boho-chic demands them and they look simply top-notch in combination with maxi skirts. Florals, lace, ruffles, pastels: let romantic imagination be your guide.
Super lightweight dress or tunic
Just as if you were a forest fairy, living in your own world somewhere deep inside the woods. These dresses are amazing and so feminine they will impress you. They’re often translucent, in which case matching lining is a must.
